This was the absolute worst experience I have ever encountered in both a restaurant and owner. When the reservation was made we assumed it would be the normal menu, even when the reservation was confirmed no mention was made of a special menu.

I setup reservations weeks and advance and was called back a few days before and told there would be a set menu at $79.99 per person. By this time it was already to late to get anything at another restaurant so I wen with it. Our waiter was excellent but everything else had a bit to be desired. The appetizer... More

We had a reservation for eight, we didn't get seated until 45' minutes later, after much much persistence. In the meantime, people were being seated left and right. Two hours later, we have yet to receive our food. We were absolutely famished. So we tried to bring everything to the managers attention-he didn't even bother to come out, he offered... More

It's not easy to find an upscale restaurant in Buford. Granted there weren't many people in on a Tuesday so we got great attention. The moroccan chicken Pastilla Roll was excellent with an almond vinegarette dip--different. My husband's Grilled Atlantaic Salmon was wonderful with its lemon beurre blanc sauce topped with a basil pesto. The grilled veggie with a goat... More

We eat at this restaurant frequently and always think of this as an upbeat fun dining experience. Last night, 1/10/2015, we were seated at one of the tables next to the piano where we have sat many times before. However, last night people were aloud to crowd around the piano and became obnoxious after several shots and heavy drinking. At... More

Worst restaurant experience ever. Sent back four out of six entrees for being stone cold. The other two in our party was so hungry they ate theirs. Also got order wrong and reheated food was then given back to the wrong people. When I didn't want someone else's food the server didn't understand. When I was explaining to owners wife... More

Atmosphere was very pleasant and food was good but alittle pricey. I liked that the chef prepared your food in the kitchen which was visable to the dining room. This is a piano bar. The piano player was playing a little too loud. It was difficult to carry on a conversation in the dinning room. The only other negative is... More

We had a 7:30 reservation for our company holiday party & finally walked out of the restaurant at 10:45. The food was sub par at best, nothing was hot & everything was served with risotto, even though most of our party ordered potatoes, when questioned about it our waiter said "oh well we ran out of potatoes". This would have... More

We had my best friends 50th birthday celebration at Adams. The planning and assistance we got from Tish and Adam was exceptional. My husband and I have been to the restaurant several times before so we know that the $$ we were given was a great deal. The reservation and party changed up a bit the week before but it... More
